Adam was born in Los Angeles, CA but grew up in Las Vegas, Nevada. The first-born son of a family of Thai cooks, Adam spent much of his childhood running around the family’s restaurant business.
His first experience with theatre was when he joined the Rainbow Company Children’s Ensemble. Playing a school bully in his very first play, Adam knew that he liked the spotlight. That led to auditioning and being accepted into the newly-opened Las Vegas Academy of Performing Arts High School. The intensive training he received in theatre, musical theatre, and dance at the school led him to winning a full scholarship to Ithaca College.
Once he finished his college career in Ithaca, Adam headed to the shining streets of New York City, quickly getting roles in original works like the Off-Broadway hit Zanna, Don’t! as well as working alongside George C. Wolfe in the Public Theater’s production of Radiant Baby. Adam was voted as “Best Featured Actor” for his performance in Pacific Overtures at the Arden Theatre Company in Philadelphia, portraying six different characters!
It wasn’t too long after that ABBA came to take Adam away to both the Las Vegas and North American companies of Mamma Mia! Playing the role of “Pepper”, Adam has done over 60,000 toe-touches for the world-hit musical!
He made his Broadway debut in the original company of Aladdin, working with Tony-winning director Casey Nicholaw. He continued onto the Broadway rival of Miss Saigon, where he covered both the roles of the Engineer and Thuy, performing his dream role several times during the one-year run! He now is touring across the US with the production.
Adam continues to work nationwide in tours, regional productions, commercials, and print ads. Adam can be seen in campaigns for Pepsi, Toyota Scion, Station Casinos, and other well-known companies.
In the midst of it all, Adam spends most of his free time traveling the world. An avid backpacker, he has visited over 40 different countries on four continents. Riding on camels in the Sahara Desert, trekking to Mount Everest Base Camp, volunteering as a teacher in Cambodia, studying yoga in India.... Adam thrives on bridging all his international life experiences with his love for acting.
